Two more using Ingrid Mono, using more layers and more muted colors. My typographic grid/concrete poetry style covers seem to have limited appeal, but I enjoy testing legibility limits and arranging letterforms and words in visual and logical patterns. Resonances,...
1201 and 1202 use Erica Type. 1203 uses Ingrid Mono.
Number 1198 is based on the Earle Bergey cover of Fantastic Story Quarterly, Spring 1950. Number 1199 uses the Kelly Freas cover of Planet Stories, March 1954. Number 1200 uses most of a brochure cover from the Manufacturers' Research Committee of the Department of...

Old hypnosis and magic show posters work well for Mesmeric Condition.
Numbers 1176 uses an Earle Bergey cover from Thrilling Wonder Stories (December 1941). Number 1177 is based on a vintage poster for Thurston the Magician. Number 1178 is another Bergey cover, this one from Captain Future (Summer 1941).

Old science fiction pulp magazine covers can work well for this band.
I’ll continue to create designs for 7" singles like 1167 and 1169, but I am no longer able to find the frames I have been using. If anyone wants a print of that size, the framing will be different and (unfortunately) more expensive. Thankfully, 12" frames continue to...
1164 is based on the cover of Hotel Talleyrand by Paul Hyde Bonner (Bantam A1405, 1955). 1165 is from Fantastic Adventures (June 1940), though I put a hat-tip in the text to Weird Tales. 1166 is from Thrilling Wonder Stories (Fall 1945): another Earle Bergey painting,...
Repurposing the great Earle Bergey from Future Science Fiction (July 1950) for #1162, and from Startling Stories (March 1949) for #1163.
I’m still enjoying repurposing the primal trope energy of old pulp images (this one from Super Science Stories, February 1942) and the rhythms of monospaced fonts in grids.
The latest releases.
The latest four, numbers 1150-1153. Numbers 1151 and 1152 use images generated by Craiyon.com.
